HW-5 1. For a point charge q at a distance a from a spherical conductor of radius R (R<a), we obtained in the lecture the result of the image charge inside the conductor. Starting from that result, calculate the following quantities. (a) The surface charge density and the force per unit area on the sphere. (b) The total induced charge and the total force on the sphere. Is the result what you expect? (c) The potential energy of the system. (d) If the potential of the conductor is V

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
